Default Vince Wilfork

Do you guys think that the steelers will/should make an attempt to sign him if he reaches free agency after this season? Even though big snack is one of my fav steelers i still think that wilfork would be an upgrade and he has already said that he isnt looking for the biggest contract which means that the steelers might have a chance.

He's looking for money. Not huge money, but big money. Plus, I don't like his character.

We wouldn't dump Hampton for Wilfork, we'd lose Hampton for a Rookie or 2nd year guy to take over. That's just my opinion.

How is he an upgrade over Big Snack? The only NT in the league I might consider to be an upgrade over Hampton would be Jamal Williams. Just because he gets constantly fellated by the media due to being a member of the bestest, most wonderfulest franchise ever while about the only time someone mentions Hampton is to crack a fat joke doesn't necessarily mean he's an upgrade.

Considering that big lummox tried to gouge Brandon Jacobs' eye out a few seasons back on his way to 4 fines that season - -

HELL NO.

It won't happen. He's going to be a high profile FA. The Steelers don't go after guys like that. Besides, high profile FA's that sign big money rarely pan out.

We will draft Snack's replacement...which has been a tried and true measure for the Steelers.

When I mentioned character, that is the precise incident that came to mind.

Thank You!!

I'm sick of the love affair the media has with this guy. I've never seen anything that special in him, at least not as a 3-4 NT. How the pats run D doing again? yeah, not that good

he's good, top ten NT in the league definitely, but the best? not even close

I still think Hampton won't be back next year, but I know for sure wilfork won't come here. Just draft a replacement in the next 2 years
